For us school consists of reading, math and memory work. Other than that I have this smorgasbord of educational materials and toys that we can use during school, not during school, in the car, or take to church while I’m working. I wanted to share my smorgasbord. I recommend everything I’m including in this post.
Reading Lessons Through Literature: phonogram review everyday, 3 spelling words a week, copywork of his choice on non spelling days, 5 minutes a day.
Math: Miquon, Rays or playing with the rods: his choice, at least 3 times a week, 5-15 minutes.
Memory work: Bible verses, everyday, 2ish minutes.
